Kids can place to watch sports in santa cruz a pancake shaped like a mouse face and play with toys while they wait. Known for fast and friendly service and generous portions.
Starting the night with a cold beer Cervecerias The first four cervecerias listed below are known for a couple of things: the coldest beer in town at a cheap price and they are often crowded on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, just before people hit a restaurant or tapas bar to get something to eat.
My favorites are El Tremendo and Bar Jota. And this is the definition of one ugly hole in the wall bar. But this is a famous place in Sevilla. While they bartenders may push what they like to call tapas, there's nothing hot or cooked offered. Mojama, a salty dried fish, is the closest thing to a tapa you'll find.
Otherwise your choices are chips and nuts, and did I mention the cold, cold beer? Stand outside no chairs with the rest of the crowd where tables are set up along the corner of the street.
Bathrooms may be the smallest in all of Sevilla. Next door is another bar which takes advantage of the spillover - the two kind of blend together.
Keep your eye out for Curro, the neighborhood dog who spends his days and nights between El Tremendo and Plaza de los Terceros. Bar Jota : Avda.
Well, there are a few tapas including gambas, but it's not what people are here to sample. Rather it's Cruzcampo served cold and like others in this category you enter, order up - just say the number of beers you'd like when it's busy - then head outside with the rest of the people on the sidewalk.
A great place to start for a beer or two or three as you decide where to go to next. La Bodeguita Antigua and Los Soportales : Plaza Salvador Centro After undergoing renovations with much of the rest of the plaza and church these two bars are now open, but some of the atmosphere is lost until the Plaza is back in it's old form.
Live music can be found on some days, vendors selling everything from toys for the kids to candy and potato chips. People would spill into the plaza and line the steps of Iglesia Salvador.
But for now, the action is limited to the smaller part of the Plaza Salvador. La Plazoleta is a great stopping point on the weekends before lunch or for a quick tapa. Plenty of cold, cheap beer make it a favorite for locals. Get your fill of American atmosphere the minute you walk in the door, which is within site of the Giralda.
Walls are covered with college banners, assorted stuff from Texas and military memorabilia. If there's a game on somewhere it's likely to be here.
You can also catch episodes of Friends in English, the Oscars and other events, just check the chalkboard in the street. Front bar area has a pool table and 4 televisions. Back dining area offers more seating with another 4 screens.
Drink specials during the week and Friday include all you can drink Cruzcampo for 10 Euros - put your drinking cap on. Free popcorn often comes with your drink Bud on tap if you wish to drink it and the burgers are pretty good.
International Beer Bars in Seville cerveza internacional You know you can always get Irish or English brews at any one of the many pubs in the city. But when you want to try something a little more exotic the bars below are your best bet.
Choose from the display of bottles along the wall or their menu which lists nation of origin, alcohol content, size and price. Speaking of price it can get pricey drinking here. Some beers contain very high alcohol content - check the menu to see how much you're getting.
The higher the content the worse it gets in my opinion: if you want more alcohol take a shot and use the beer as the chaser! C Arenal Looking for the brew pub experience? A choice of five or so beers as well as some good tapas bring in a mixed crowd, although it's not the cheapest place around.
I tried their specialty, bacalao frito y dorado, which is similar to scrambled eggs with bits of cod served in a cazuela.
Sounds weird, but it's quite good. A good place to start the evening and a good place to sample something other than Cruzcampo, which, by the way, is still the best beer on earth Plenty on tap but even more in bottles.
German Beer place : Reyes Catolicos Arenal OK, I need to get the name down of this place, but they have some German brews on tap as well as a little international food. It's visible from Reyes Catolicos. Bars Bares de copas There is a long list of choices when it comes to a bar de copas, and much depends on what kind of mood your in.
After a beer or two, and as the night gets going, you may find yourself heading to one of these spots for some mixed drinks. You can find some good food in the early hours but later in the evening the place is set up for drinking. Music varies but they play more rock and spanish pop than anything else.
A definite "hole in the wall" bar with a list of over 50 different shots is opposite the bar, some named for celebrities "Harrison Ford", "Kim Bassinger" - the names show the bar opened in the mid's while others are a bit more clever, like "Pipi de Burro", "Orgasmo", "Moco", "Cerebrito".
The walls were papered in old comic books, and retro '80s tunes were playing all night when we were there.
This has since changed since a recent redecorating effort and more modern music. The shot menu is still there but much smaller and hard to read.
Liked the retro bit before, but still a good place for cheap shots and copas. A wide variety of shots with a backdrop of Indian "artifacts" like axes, clothing and more. Unfortunately the last color they chose was gray.
Paint aside they offer live music times per week, with mostly local acts but some out-of-towners as well. Clientele includes local musicians and actors as well as your everyday folks. Free music, often Flamenco, can be found in the back covered terraza, popular in the summer and winter.
The front bar with a more rustic, winter pub atmosphere includes a piano, stone walls and floors, fireplaces and wooden tables and chairs. A mix of people, from pijo to earthy, spanish to every nationality under the sun, with plenty of Americans if here for only a day or two.
Aside from it's reputation as tourists bar, when there's a live act and I've got a friend in town they always come away liking the place. Likely a good place for Halloween considering the morbid stuff hanging from the ceiling: bodies, faces and other creepy stuff.
Large bar allows you to find a corner to order a copa and head into the street with the rest of the crowd. Some outdoor seating with a large bar inside.
Turns into a bar de copas at night with a lively, mixed group. A few blocks away you may see some questionable women, if I may puta it that way.
But it's a safe place with a good crowd. You may catch a glimpse of a local actor or two. Tables outside in the warmer months and nice and cozy inside. Drinks, music and pool, and again, a lot of Americans with a few Spaniards from time to time.
Cheap drink specials during the week make it a stopping point for many enjoying the river and action of Calle Betis. Dancing: Discos in Seville Discotecas When the action winds down in the bars the discotecas are often still open, many until 6 or 7am.
Drinks are more expensive and the bouncers often select the clientele at the door. With 4 bars located at various levels and a very large, stadium type dance area it's a favorite of many for the late night scene.
